Reflecting on Teaching
End of Semester Teaching Reflection
Teaching Reflection is one of UNL's three recommended inputs for informing teaching excellence, along with Peer Review and Student Survey. The End of Semester Teaching Reflection Activities packet is a set of reflection activities (word doc and pdf) designed to be used at the end of the semester and in conjunction with your Student Learning Experience (SLE) survey results. The CC & ASC committee voted to recommend this packet be used within the College of Engineering on October 27, 2020.
Other Reflection Packets
- General use reflection packet: This set of reflection activities (word doc or pdf) can be used to guide your reflection on teaching. There are five different sets of prompts targeted at different components of a course: the first day of class, student assessments, the end of the semester, daily or weekly teaching activities, and reviewing Student Learning Experiences survey data.
- Online teaching reflection packet: This set of reflection activities (word doc or pdf) can be used for instructors teaching online courses. There are three different sets of prompts: one for use after assignments and tests, one for weekly or per module use, and one for the end of the semester.
- Peer Observation of Classroom Activities (POCA) participants: These reflection guides are made to be used with the Comprehensive Instructional Profile reports that are produced for participants in the POCA program. There is one for the single-semester reports (word doc and pdf) that are created after each semester of participation, and there is one for the multi-semester reports (word doc and pdf) that are created for those instructors who participate in the POCA program over multiple semesters.
- Peer Observer reflections: These reflections (word doc or pdf) are made to be used shortly after you have completed a teaching observation using the Classroom Observation Protocol for Undergraduate STEM (COPUS). There is a version for faculty or non-faculty who have a teaching assignment and one for graduate students or others who have not yet been an instructor but plan to teach in the future.
